Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Test
There is very little chance of a problem from an HPV test. You may worry or feel frightened if you need more testing.
After the procedure
- You may have a small amount of vaginal bleeding or gray-green discharge after this test, and you may want to use a panty liner to protect your clothes from any spotting.
- Do not have sex until your doctor tells you it is safe to do so.
